Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Arizona Coyotes, coach John Tortorella announced.

Jones suffered an MCL sprain in a preseason game on Sept. 25 and was initially expected to miss four-to-six weeks.

The 24-year-old finished second in team scoring last season and led all Columbus defensemen with 57 points. He also averaged more than 24 minutes per game and finished fourth in Norris Trophy voting.

The Blue Jackets have posted a 4-3-0 record in Jones' absence to begin the season.
